AGREEMENT
PRELIMINARY
(1) For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “legal aid body” means a legal aid centre, a legal aid bureau or the Commission des services juridiques; it includes any organization or person that issues certificates of eligibility for legal aid.
(2) This Agreement governs, for the purposes of the legal aid plan, any advocate who agrees to render professional services to a legal aid recipient, with the exception of an advocate who is employed by a legal aid centre.
CHAPTER I
CONDITIONS OF PRACTICE
DIVISION I
FREE CHOICE OF AN ADVOCATE
(3) A person who is financially eligible may consult an advocate in private practice before submitting an application for legal aid under section 62 of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services (chapter A-14).
(4) An application for legal aid may be submitted by the advocate himself on behalf of a person in favour of whom a conditional certificate of eligibility may be issued under the Act. In such case, the application shall be verbal.
(5) A legal aid body shall, according to the criteria set forth in the Act, distribute equitably among the advocates the mandates for which recipients wish to be represented by an advocate registered in the legal aid plan but have not chosen a particular advocate.
(6) Where there is a substitution of attorney to which section 81 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services (R.R.Q., 1981, c. A-14, r. 1) applies, the legal aid centre shall notify the advocate of record in writing that the recipient has requested a substitution of attorney and shall inform him of the name of the new attorney.
The preceding provision applies in like manner where the advocate of record or the new attorney is an advocate employed by a legal aid body.
(7) An advocate representing a person for the exercising of a right in respect of which the person becomes a legal aid recipient shall retain his mandate, subject to the provisions of the Act.
In such case, the legal aid body issuing the certificate of eligibility shall so inform the advocate of record and shall request his consent to continue the mandate, on the terms set forth by the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services and the Regulations thereunder.
DIVISION II
PROFESSIONAL FREEDOM
(8) The legal aid plan shall respect an advocate’s professional freedom; in particular, the plan shall recognize the advocate’s professional autonomy and shall preserve the personal and privileged nature of his relationship with the recipient.
(9) Under the legal aid plan an advocate shall maintain his professional autonomy. It is his responsibility to determine which services he must render within the context of a legal aid mandate, while acting in the best interests of the recipient.
An advocate shall comply with the mandate he receives from the legal aid body on behalf of the recipient; the conditions of the mandate are intended to identify the type of legal aid required by the recipient.
(10) The legal aid body shall refrain from intervening in the conduct of the advocate’s mandate; however, it may satisfy itself that the mandate is fulfilled. The conduct of the advocate’s mandate includes recourse to any expert reports that, according to recognized professional practices, may be justified by the nature and scope of the case, in conformity with the Act and the regulations. The advocate shall obtain the authorization of the general manager of the legal aid centre before having recourse to expert reports. The general manager shall fix a maximum amount for the advocate’s fees and the fees for expert reports.
(11) An advocate is at liberty to accept a legal aid mandate.
(12) He may terminate any mandate in accordance with recognized standards of practice; in such case, he shall so notify the legal aid body and the recipient in writing.
(13) The advocate shall render an account to the recipient of the conduct of his mandate and shall report to the legal aid body from which he received the mandate concerning the professional services that he has rendered.
In communicating with the Commission or a legal aid body, the advocate shall respect professional secrecy.
DIVISION III
REMUNERATION
(14) Every legal service rendered in accordance with the provisions of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services and this Agreement by an advocate or to the extent provided for in section 52 of the Act, by an articling student under his supervision, shall be remunerated according to the tariff appearing in Schedule II to this Agreement.
A professional service related to the exercise of a right consequential to a statute or a regulation and for which this Agreement does not prescribe a rate or the payment of a special consideration is subject to remuneration.
In such case, the legal aid body shall evaluate the advocate’s statement of fees and fix the amount of remuneration. Such decisions may be the subject of a dispute.
(15) The advocate shall forward his statement of fees to the legal aid body from which he received his mandate within 3 years following the end of that mandate. That deadline is mandatory. When the mandate ends with a judgment, the 3-year period runs from the 30th day following the date of the judgment. Payment shall be made within 30 days following receipt of the statement of fees.
In the cases determined by regulation, the statement of fees shall be forwarded to the Commission and shall be paid by it within the same deadline.
Where there is a replacement of advocate under section 81.1 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services, the statement of fees shall be sent by the advocate who received the mandate and the payment of fees and disbursements is made as if there had been no replacement.
(16) A statement of fees may be an interim or final account. Statements shall be submitted electronically or on the form provided by the legal aid bureau.
An interim account covers professional services rendered in a case ready for hearing at 30 June of a given year. Professional services rendered for the preparation of the personal information forms referred to in section T219 of Schedule II may be covered by an interim account.
An interim account also covers professional services rendered in the preceding 12 months.
(17) Any amount due and unpaid on a statement of fees drawn up in accordance with the Act and this Agreement shall commence to bear annual interest 30 days after it is received by the legal aid body or the Commission, as the case may be.
The interest rate shall be equal to the discount rate of the Bank of Canada in force on 1 April and 1 October each year, plus 1.5%. The rate thus fixed shall be in force for the following 6 months.
(18) A statement of fees is complete when it mentions the services rendered according to the nomenclature in the tariff in Schedule II.
(19) Disbursements include fees for expert reports and other fees pertaining to proceedings incidental to the legal aid mandate, including expenses for subpoena by bailiff or by registered or certified mail.
Disbursements may appear on a separate statement. They shall be paid by the legal aid body which gave the mandate or by the Commission within 30 days of the receipt of a statement of disbursement.
(20) An advocate shall receive no reimbursement for travel and parking within a radius of 25 km from his office.
The advocate is entitled to the maximum reimbursement for travel expenses fixed by the Règles sur les frais de déplacement des fonctionnaires pour l’utilisation d’un véhicule automobile personnel, as made by the Conseil du trésor under the Public Administration Act (chapter A-6.01),
(1) according to the distance actually travelled, in the case of a trip beyond a 25-km radius from his office and within the boundaries of the judicial district where he has his office;
(2) according to the distance actually travelled up to a maximum of 200 km, in the case of a trip beyond a 25 km radius from his office and within the boundaries of the judicial district where he has his office;
(3) according to the distance actually travelled, in the case of an attendance at the Supreme Court of Canada, at the Court of Appeal of Québec or at the Federal Court, made beyond a 25 km radius from his office and outside the boundaries of the judicial district where he has his office, or of an attendance at a court or body which carries out its jurisdiction outside the boundaries of the judicial district where the advocate has his office; notwithstanding the preceding, where the advocate has his office in a judicial district other than the one where the legal aid centre which issued the mandate is located, he shall elect to receive either the reimbursement established in subparagraph 2 or a reimbursement established according to the distance between the place where the mandate was issued and that where the court in question sits;
(4) according to the distance actually travelled by the advocate, in the case of a trip made with the authorization of the director general of the legal aid centre, outside the boundaries of the judicial district where he has his office, where the nature or complexity of the matter requires that the mandate be given to that advocate.
An advocate who is entitled to a reimbursement under the provisions of this section is also entitled to the reimbursement of any parking expenses he incurs.
The travelling and parking expenses may not exceed the actual travelling expenses paid by the advocate.
(21) Where the tariff in Schedule II provides for a flat-rate remuneration for a series of services and the mandate is carried out by more than one advocate, each advocate, if he is in private practice, is entitled, subject to the provisions of the third paragraph of section 15, to the part of the flat-rate fee corresponding to the services that he rendered.
(22) Where the mandates issued in the name of an advocate during a given fiscal period have generated fees for a total exceeding $140,000, the fees payable to him for the services that he renders within the scope of those mandates and exceeding that amount shall be reduced by 35%.
(23) An advocate representing a recipient in respect of whom legal aid is suspended or withdrawn or a recipient who ceases to be eligible for such aid shall be remunerated according to the provisions of this Agreement for the services rendered before receipt of a notice from the legal aid body, sent by mail or by telecommunications, informing him of the cessation of legal aid and the reasons for the decision.
The preceding provision also applies where the recipient chooses to dispense with legal aid.
(24) In a case where legal aid ceases to be provided, the advocate may nevertheless include in his statement of fees legal services that were rendered after receipt of the notice from the legal aid body, for the delivery of conservatory measures necessary to safeguard the person’s rights or requested by the court.
(25) Where a legal aid body refuses to pay a statement of fees, it shall, within the period allotted for payment of the statement, so notify the advocate in writing, and that notice shall state the reasons for its refusal.
The preceding provision governs the Commission in cases where it assumes the payment of fees.
(26) A refusal to pay fees shall be founded upon the non-compliance of the fees asked under the provisions of the Act and this Agreement.
CHAPTER II
PROCEDURE FOR THE SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES
(27) A dispute means any disagreement concerning the interpretation or the application of this Agreement, including any disagreement concerning a statement of fees.
(28) A dispute may not be founded on a matter within the disciplinary jurisdiction of the Barreau du Québec.
(29) Before submitting a dispute according to section 32, an advocate may refer the matter for conciliation by means of a notice in writing to the body refusing payment of his statement of fees and to the section of the Barreau du Québec to which he belongs.
(30) Within 15 days following receipt of the notice, the general manager of the regional centre and the bâtonnier of the section shall each designate an advocate.
(31) Within 30 days following their designation, the advocates so appointed and the advocate who is the claimant shall meet, examine one another’s claims and endeavour to reach an agreement.
(31.1) The regional centre and the section of the Barreau du Québec concerned shall hold at least one conciliation session per semester, where applicable.
(32) A dispute shall be submitted by the advocate by means of a notice addressed to the regional centre or the Commission, as the case may be. The notice shall contain a summary statement of the facts and the relief sought.
A dispute concerning contested fees shall be submitted within 6 months following receipt of a notice of refusal to pay or the claim for a reimbursement; in such case, a copy of the notice of dispute shall be forwarded to the regional centre.
(33) Referral for conciliation interrupts the prescription of 6 months.
(34) Upon receipt of a notice of dispute, the regional centre or the Commission, as the case may be, shall answer in writing.
(35) If the advocate is dissatisfied with the answer, or if no answer is forwarded to him within 30 days following submission of the notice of dispute, the advocate shall submit the dispute for arbitration by means of a letter addressed to the Chief Justice of the Court of Québec within 6 months. A copy of the letter shall be sent by the advocate to the regional centre or the Commission, as the case may be, and to the Barreau du Québec. The Chief Justice or the Senior Associate Chief Justice of the Court of Québec, as the case may be, shall designate one of the judges of that Court to act as arbitrator.
(36) The Barreau du Québec may directly submit any dispute of general interest for arbitration; in such case, it shall so notify the Commission.
In particular, any alleged infringement of the provisions relating to the free choice of an advocate or professional freedom may be the subject of a dispute of general interest.
After giving at least 30 days’ notice to the Commission, the Barreau du Québec may either intervene, or take up the defence of an advocate who submits a dispute.
(37) The arbitrator has jurisdiction, to the exclusion of any court, to rule on a dispute within the meaning of this Agreement. He may uphold, modify or rescind the disputed decision and, by the terms of his award, order a payment or a reimbursement, assess compensation, restore a right or make any other order he considers fair in the circumstances.
However, the arbitrator may not modify the provisions of this Agreement. The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on the parties.
(38) The arbitrator may issue an interim award at any time.
(39) Stenography fees and fees to reproduce a recording of the judicial hearings, if any, shall be borne by the regional centre or the Commission, as the case may be.
(40) The arbitrator shall forward any award by registered mail to the parties and to the Barreau du Québec.
CHAPTER III

(49) The Commission shall consult the Barreau du Québec where it intends to draft or modify the forms that an advocate must fill out for the purposes of the legal aid plan.
(50) In accordance with section 22.1 of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services, the Commission des services juridiques and the legal aid centres shall send to the Barreau du Québec a copy of any guide for the administration of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services and the regulations made thereunder, as well as of any directive related thereto and dealing with financial eligibility or services for which legal aid is granted and with written directives respecting the payment of statement of fees. The Commission and the legal aid centres shall also send to the Barreau du Québec any updating of such guide or directives.
(51) Schedule I reproduces the directive of the Commission des services juridiques respecting the procedure for the application of section 69 of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services.
(52) This Agreement replaces the Regulation to ratify the Agreement between the Minister of Justice and the Barreau du Québec respecting the conditions of practice, the procedure for the settlement of disputes and the tariff of fees of advocates under the legal aid plan entered into on 14 December 2000 (O.C. 539-2001, 2001-05-09).
(53) This Agreement comes into force on 23 October 2008.
It applies to mandates given from 1 April 2007, except sections T201.1 to T201.2 for which it applies to mandates given from 1 January 2008.
This Agreement terminates on 31 March 2010. Despite its expiry, it shall continue to apply until replaced. The parties agree that the next negotiations must be entered into early enough so that a negotiated agreement is ready at the expiry of this Agreement.
SCHEDULE I
(s. 51)
DIRECTIVE OF THE COMMISSION DES SERVICES JURIDIQUES RESPECTING THE APPLICATION OF SECTION 69 OF THE ACT RESPECTING LEGAL AID AND THE PROVISION OF CERTAIN OTHER LEGAL SERVICES
To all general managers of legal aid centres:
The purpose of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services is to allow financially eligible persons access to legal services. However, the legal aid plan does not have to pay costs that an applicant can pay from the amount that he is likely to receive upon settlement of his case. Therefore, where an agreement can be reached between an applicant and an advocate in private practice regarding extrajudicial fees in cases where such fees are warranted, the general manager or his representative shall refer the applicant to the advocate in private practice.
This directive also applies to family matters in which the state and faculties of the spouse are such that it is reasonable to anticipate the granting to the applicant of support in excess of the eligibility criteria for legal aid or of a compensatory benefit or of a benefit equivalent to his share of the family patrimony which would normally make that person ineligible for legal aid.
The chair of the commission

GENERAL CIVIL TARIFF
Classes of actions
T20.I. An application in which the amount or value in dispute is less than $3,000;
II. An application in which the amount or value in dispute is between $3,000 and $10,000 exclusively;
III. An application in which the amount or value in dispute
(a) is between $10,000 and $25,000 exclusively;
(b) is between $25,000 and $50,000 exclusively;
IV. An application in which the amount or value in dispute is $50,000 or more.
T21. For proceedings or actions not provided for specifically by the tariff but governed by the Code of Civil Procedure, the fees are fixed according to the provisions of the Agreement in respect of similar proceedings or actions. Such proceeding or action in which the amount or value in dispute is indeterminable or inexistent falls under Class II.
T22. For proceedings related to filiation, disavowal or the deprivation of parental authority, the fees are those prescribed for Class IIIA.
T23. Hypothecary actions are considered to be purely personal actions and the value in dispute is determined by the balance of the obligation.
T24. In an action by a creditor to enforce a right to become the absolute owner of an immovable, the class of the action is determined according to the value of the immovable.
T25. Unless otherwise provided by law, every action to set aside a contract or a will is classified according to the value of the contract or the succession; if in addition a sum of money is claimed, the total amount determines the class of the action.
T26. Where two or more defendants file separate contestations, the advocate of the plaintiff receives for each additional contestation one-half of the fee prescribed by section T35 or section T36 of this Schedule, according to the stage of the proceedings. For the purposes of this rule, the intervenor, the impleaded party and the defendant on warranty, if they ask for dismissal of the main action, are each considered to be a defendant filing a separate contestation.
T27. Where two or more incidental applications can be framed in a single proceeding, the fees are payable only once despite the multiplicity of proceedings.
T28. In the matter of a declaratory judgment and a decision on a question of law, the interest in dispute, if it can be evaluated in money, determines the class of the action; otherwise, the fees are those prescribed for Class II.
T29. In the case of a review of taxation of a bill of costs, the costs are based on the class of action corresponding to the amount of the costs in dispute.
T30. There are no separate amounts of fees in the case of a cross demand, but the class of action corresponds to the highest of the amounts for which judgment is recovered.
T31. If a settlement is reached between the parties or proceedings are withdrawn before the issue of the originating process, the advocate is entitled to the fees prescribed for an action of that class in the case of such settlement reached after the issue of the originating process and before the serving of any defence or contestation on the merits.

If other conclusions are sought, the fees are those of the class prescribed for such conclusions, but are not less than those prescribed for Class IIIA. The fees shall be calculated in the following manner: when the judgment on the motion for an interlocutory injunction terminates the case or the judgment on the motion for a permanent injunction is not preceded by a judgment on motion for an interlocutory judgment, the advocate is entitled to the fees taxable on a judgment on the merits of the case. Where the judgment on the motion for a permanent injunction follows a judgment on a motion for an interlocutory injunction, the advocate is entitled to the fees taxable on a judgment on the merits increased by one-half.
T47. In proceedings for boundary delimitation, possessory or petitory proceedings, proceedings for appointment of a receiver, and in actions for declaration or denial of a servitude, the fees are those prescribed for Class II.
T48. In proceedings for judicial partition and licitation, the class of actions is in accordance with the value of the matter in dispute.
T49. In proceedings respecting legal persons, for extraordinary recourses in particular judicial review and evocation (a. 846 C.C.P.) and habeas corpus under Titles V, VI and VII of Book V of the Code of Civil Procedure, the fees are those prescribed for Class II.
T50. In non-contentious proceedings, the fees are those of section T37(a), Class II, with the exception of the procedure governing the sale of the property of others provided for in Chapter X of Book VI of the Code of Civil Procedure, the class being determined by the value of the property.
